Trumpet vine flowers and "fruit"


Trumpet vine (Campsis radicans), a vining plant featuring red trumpet-shaped flowers. Also known as “hummingbird vine.” I spotted the plant growing along a wooden fence enclosing the power supply for a microwave cell tower.

The following gallery shows trumpet vine flowers as they morph into “fruit” (seed pods). The fruit reminds me of plantains. Look closely — black ants seem to like trumpet vine fruit! I spotted the plant growing wildly in a green space between commercial buildings.
